6th April, Monday. Dined with the general. Writing, &c. In the evening visited Malgares and the secretary. After dinner wine was set on the table, and we were entertained with songs in the French, Italian, Spanish and English languages. Accustomed as I was to sitting some time after dinner I forgot their siesta, (or repose after dinner) until Walker suggested the thing to me, when we retired.
Wine, musical entertainment, naps. Pike has possibly never enjoyed as much luxury in his entire life as he does today and throughout his comfortable captivity in New Spain.
